Female business owners who completed Aviatra’s LAUNCH® this summer pitched their businesses at Flight Night on September 2, 2021, at The Children’s Theater of Cincinnati, live and virtually. The female entrepreneurs who completed LAUNCH® already operate viable businesses with established revenue streams and a customer base. Their participation in LAUNCH®, an eight-week course on all aspects of running and growing a business, made them eligible to present their pitch at Aviatra’s Flight Night competition. Emily Bruns and Sofia Mimendi of Aclipse Campervans were awarded the grand prize of $ 6,000 in business funding.
